I'm not one to jump in on IsoGeochem but I feel that this is an opportunity that some might be interested in. If you are interested and have experience with troubleshooting and repair of IRMS instruments and their many peripherals, there is an a opening in our field service group. Note the link below.
Don't be misled by the locations and many of the descriptors in "What will you do?" and "Education" in the job description. A willingness to travel, an ability to make decisions independently, an aptitude for accepting and resolving challenges, and adaptability are all important attributes that will be considered for worthy applicants. We service and install hundreds of IRMS systems and nearly every peripheral (far more than listed in the posting) that is associated with the instrument throughout the US. This requires an understanding of a wide variety of peripherals and the software and firmware that drives this instrumentation. Equally important, is a general understanding of the principles of isotope chemistry and how these are applied to the research we help support. Other and equally important backgrounds, but by no means exclusive, include geochemistry, ocean sciences, and earth sciences, along with the mentioned life sciences, and chemistry.
If it sounds appealing, apply!
